This 20 credit, Level 7 module has been developed jointly by the Department of Primary and Social Care at London South Bank University and Tower Hamlets Community Education Provider Network.

The module has been designed to encourage a multi-professional student group to work together to develop strategies to improve the care experience for people living with long term conditions using an integrated approach to care. It is available to study as a standalone module but may also be used as part of a master’s pathway through accreditation of prior learning.

Participants should be working in a multi-professional learning environment to enable them to enhance opportunities for integrated care when adopting a case management approach to caring for service users with long term conditions. In addition participants should have evidence of successful study at level 6 and would normally have achieved a bachelors’ degree or evidence of significant health and /or social care experience requiring them to work at this level.

In this module participants will develop knowledge and skills to promote integrated working between a range of health and social care professionals, promoting greater insight into the principles of managing service users with long term conditions. The module will provide

an arena to explore an integrated approach to case management aimed at providing holistic care to service users with long term conditions in practice. Current policies and evidence relating to long term conditions management will be debated for some of the most significant conditions impacting on the lives of service users and carers.

Action learning sets will be utilised throughout this module to enable health and social care professionals to enhance their skills based on real life scenarios. It is envisaged that studying this module will support integrated teams to enhance the development of care for people living with long term conditions.
